    I don’t care for them, but do like to see them around…. they are such cute, fun candy in the Fall. LOL

    There is a candy jar full of them here at work and people keep stopping by to grab a few. Can’t help but think what a cesspool of germs are in each handful!

    I do not like them by themselves, but I have had these, and they taste like butterfingers.

    Ingredients

    3 cups candy corn candy
    1 cup creamy peanut butter
    10 ounces chocolate almond bark or candy melts


    Instructions

    Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly spray with cooking spray and set aside.

    Place Candy Corn in a large microwave safe bowl. Heat candy corn in microwave on high for 1 minute. Remove and stir until candy is completely melted. Heat for addition time, in 15 second intervals, if needed.

    Once candy corn is melted, heat peanut butter in microwave for 25-30 seconds until runny.

    Stir peanut butter into melted candy corn until completely incorporated.

    Turn out onto baking sheet and press down to about 3/4 inch thickness (8x8-inch square.)

    While candy is still soft, cut into 1x2 inch bars. Let candy cool for 1 hour.

    Line a second baking sheet with waxed paper. Melt chocolate according to package directions.

    Dip each bar into melted chocolate, coating to cover completely.

    Place on waxed paper to set.

    Store in an airtight container.

    Mixed in with some peanuts it's OK, overall pretty terrible.
